Default Creating fields linked to other fields?

Hi guys. Is it possible to create a simple text field where you type in, for
example, a person's name, and then create links to that field elsewhere in
the document so that same name appears in other spots?

I looked at the Cross Reference feature, but that only seems to work on
specific items (numbered lists, headings, footnotes, etc.), while all I need
is a simple text field.

Thanks.
